5:39 am
to leave the european union, international businesses would flee the country. they probably would go to frankfurt, dublin or another eu financial capital. >> so jill, what's expected and why should we care? >> reporter: the opinion polls have been shown a dead heat. the last one released last night shows a slight edge to the remain camp. now, here's why we care. if the british were to choose to leave, there would certainly be global effects. according to the imf, "brexit" would likely plunge the uk into a recession. that might drag down europe and obviously would limit growth for the rest of the world. the imf says that it could also spark a uk stock market crash. i mean, they use the word crash, and that that crash would spill over into the rest of the world. obviously, that would mean market volatility here at least in the short term. and now, uncertainty about the future, it could take two years
5:40 am
to figure out how britain would actually leave. we would see lots of pressure in our investments. we hope it doesn't happen. but for more on the "brexit" i have an extensive q & a at . >> it's a global economy these days. jill schlesinger from new york, thank you. it is 5:40. still ahead, tense moments in the air after an airplane passenger threatens to bring it down and made an emergency landing. >> let's check 880 this morning. we'll have traffic coming up. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
